A few years back, my brother and a bunch of his friends were in town for a football game (Nebraska vs. Northwestern). We went to a bar, where my brother looked at the beer menu and tried ordering two Foster's Oil Cans, only to be told they were out. So he went back to the menu and ordered two Colt .45s instead. … » 10/22/14 3:56pm Yesterday 3:56pm

"Without changing things in Game of Thrones, we would never have had as much of Jerome Flynn's delightful Bronn as we have, or the palpable shock of seeing Shae show up to give a testimony at Tyrion's trial in The Law of Gods and Men (already a great episode, made even better by such a surprise for a book reader… » 10/22/14 3:17pm Yesterday 3:17pm

Not necessarily. I do a lunge 3 pack, where I do straight walking lunges, lunges at an angle, and then side lunges. I do them back to back and don't typically rest between sets because they work slightly different muscles, and I'd say they take probably 2 or more minutes. I have strong legs, but I'm not freakish, by… » 10/21/14 6:35pm Tuesday 6:35pm

Do you suppose when she goes out, all the security guards are basically toting giant towels/blankets, ready to make a privacy screen the instant her mouth starts watering in that horrifying pre-vomit way? If so I would like to hire princess services for the day after my work holiday party this year. » 10/21/14 5:46pm Tuesday 5:46pm

In the first half of last season, I mentioned on one of these reviews that I would like to see them expand the cast a little more. While Abbie and Ichabod are clearly the main part of the show, we had hardly any supporting characters, and I felt like the show suffered for it. I thought we were going in the right… » 10/21/14 12:04pm Yesterday 12:04pm

One solution I see people use is to divide work histories. So say you have a section for "Relevant Work Experience", where you talk a little more extensively about the baking experience you have had, and then an "Other Work Experience" section, where you essentially just list dates and positions for your other less… » 10/21/14 1:37pm Tuesday 1:37pm

It's my understanding that the GoRuck races are meant to mimic an actual military experience much more closely than these kinds of races (with regards to fitness, obviously, not getting shot at and stuff). My brother did one, and it was like 10 hours long...you have to carry your own 40lb pack along with railroad… » 10/16/14 11:36am 10/16/14 11:36am

When my dad and stepmom came to visit me in Chicago, I took them to The Purple Pig on the Mag Mile, because they like wine and cheese and they were staying downtown. My dad was absolutely horrified when he saw people eating bone marrow. He seriously still brings it up every time I suggest a restaurant, "Do they… » 10/15/14 5:39pm 10/15/14 5:39pm

I would say only invite out of town people if they're with someone in the wedding party. I, personally, would love to have an evening to explore as I wished in a new city, rather than having to make small talk with a bunch of people at a pre-planned dinner. » 10/15/14 5:35pm 10/15/14 5:35pm

Honestly, it wasn't really a terrible movie. Like Meredith says, it was just flat. You didn't have to look hard for worthwhile things to enjoy, but at the end of the day, even as someone who had read the books, I found it difficult to really grab on to the plot. I'm not sure if it's because the story just doesn't… » 10/15/14 2:09pm 10/15/14 2:09pm
